    Agreed that the 47 iteration is the best version. In its minimalist state, the pocket array and zipper placement is perfectly balanced. I saved the measurements from when I bought my 47R, and they are exactly the same as the 47TS so I don't think they changed the fit block. Having said that, I always felt like my 58 fit pretty well under my 47 because its a bit roomier than other jackets to begin with.

    Thanks for sharing. From the product shots, I also thought the collar on the 47 looked slightly revised. With the hood out, the TS seems to hold its shape better, which is something that has always bothered me on my 47R. One question: Does the 47TS have the same high pocket that the 47, 47A, and 47R have or does it only have the one that dips down like the 47A? Surprised the product shots don't show the full pocket array.

    I would be very surprised if the J1A previewed in the 3A-1 images is hoodless. I think it's more likely the hood has just been removed, and the collar flipped down. Price-wise I don't think you're wrong.

    The PX fabric is Polartec Alpha.

    J72-DS is re-releasing in a white color way. Black is -AK.

    The J47TS will be around $2400 USD so yes, around 2000 Euros...

    Mine was slightly off too out of the box, but I hung it with the collar down zipped up for a day and it was much neater after that. I was mostly referring to the zipper being centered on the pattern, not the collar itself. I also don't think the fabric is any lighter than other GT Pro, the jacket itself is just lighter. I do agree the collar will look nice popped up as well, but down it almost reminds me of Kiko Kostodinov FW17: See here

    Yeah, it is similar although I think it's asymmetric to accommodate an escape zip as well, whereas the J69 is completely centered. I am surprised people aren't talking more about the new J1A. The new collar is perfect IMO. Maybe people haven't seen it because its buried in the bag images?

    People are sleeping on the J69. IMO, it's the highlight of the whole season, especially for new pieces. I also noticed acrnm.com seems to have changed the typeface used on the site...

    Has anyone who owns the J66 tried to layer with J58 underneath? Comparing measurements of the two jackets online it seems like the fit would be uncomfortably tight, but I know the 66 has an AuxZip...

    Thanks for review. Surprised to hear that the hood can't be stowed. I thought with the "interior stabilization ring" it might be partially stowable. Two Questions: 1. Does the GT version have jacketsling loops on inside? 2. How do you like the reversed hardware snaps on the front compared with 47R?
  13. Acronym.

    Yeah, I tried on both an M and L, and the roominess was fine on both, but I preferred the added sleeve and body length. It seems like Acronym made a concerted effort with this jacket to have whatever sleeve you are wearing underneath come through at the opening so they made the sleeves shorter, more along the lines of a traditional top coat.

    Been field testing the J62-S for the last few weeks, and thought I'd share some impressions. Overall, it might be the best ACR jacket I've ever owned. I sized up from an M to an L because the fit was profile, and I wanted more of a straight fit. Sizing up still keeps its tailored shape, but with a slightly longer sleeve. I also love the added length. So far I've found it amazing to layer with, especially in combination with a J58. It's a great everyday piece too. I can wear it all day at work, and then if I go out that night, it transitions extremely well. Initially, I was worried I might not love the minimal amount of pockets, especially with no zippers, but the two pockets are so deep, there is actually more total storage space than other ACR jackets with more pockets. You also quickly get used to the double single welt pockets that do a fine job at keeping everything secure. I can fit an entire book, gloves, wallet, etc. with zero bulk. The only negative I've found with the jacket is the hood seems to have an excess of fabric, and if this is done for a reason, I can't figure out why. I mostly wear it without the hood, as I think it looks cleaner without it, but in snow or rain, I'll snap it back on. All in all, I can't recommend this piece enough. Definitely one of the more slept on pieces of FW17. I've attached a photo of the hood to show what I'm talking about (intentionally bunched up to show the amount of excess). Does anyone think its actually a error and not intentional?

    I have a J47R as well, and I usually just roll it up pretty tight so the velcro closure covers the Speedlock. I'm usually afraid to keep it rolled up though because I'm afraid it will wear out the GT overtime. Does anyone keep it stowed 100% of the time (provided it's not raining)?
